We can roll with our DT situation for 1-2 more years to see if any changes need to be made. We have alot of young depth to develop.

Neblett is a stud and should be our starting 3 technique, if you ask me. His pro day (2010) measurables.

Height: 6000

Weight: 297

Bench Press: 33

Vertical Jump: 30.5"

40 T: 4.93

That is a pretty good athlete.

McClain, a third round pick with similar collegiate stats:

Height: 6015

Weight: 291

Vertical Jump: 28"

40 T: 4.96

I think we have the makings of a pair of stud 3 technique DTs. We shall see.

They are more UT's no?

Also Shirley and Kearse are going to be the future.

I think with an offseason of work to work on strength and technique will do wonders for Shirley, kearse, McClain and fua. But having shirley and kearse in the middle would be great, they already have the size, they look much more intimidating in the middle

True. Very true. Which is why I'm freaking excited about actually having an Offseason and mini camps and OTA's. This should help them out a ton.

I think the most interesting camp battle will be which defensive tackles Ron keeps on the 53 man roster

That's tough to say. How many DT's were on the roster last year? Or a better question, how many did they carry each game? Like what, 5? Or 6?

Edwards, Neblett, McClain, Fua, Shirley, Kearse, who else? I know I'm forgetting someone...

Beginning of the year they usually only had 3...McClain fua and neblett....then it was McClain fua and kearse...then it was kearse Shirley neblett and nwagbuo. He usually only had three active for most of the year.

Kearse was a rookie just like McClain and Fua. I think he has a higher ceiling than them and I hope we doesn't get blocked from playing time because of them. I honestly hope Kearse starts day one. I'd line him up next to Edwards, and have McClain, and Neblettt on the bench. I hate to leave Shirley off because he is awesome. Fua I don't see getting much action. I can't see having more than 4 active each game. Maybe only 3. Alexander, CJ, Hardy, Applewhite and maybe some other guys will play inside some.

My biggest fear is kearse Shirley and neblett getting blocked of a roster spot/playing time just based on the investment made in McClain and fua( both being third round picks)

I agree. I would hope they are prepared to cut ties when the time comes if they don't pan out.
